Editorial Reviews

WHITE HEAT (1949) "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" Cagney's Cody Jarrett--a psychotic thug devoted to his tough-as-nails mother--is the searing centerpiece of this blazing, fast-paced thriller. CITY FOR CONQUEST (1940) Club fighter Cagney turns pro to bankroll his composer brother's dream of writing the great New York City symphony. But life pulls the sidewalk out from under them in an intensely moving saga co-starring Ann Sheridan. EACH DAWN I DIE (1939) Two of the screen's famed tough guys--Cagney as a reporter framed for manslaughter and George Raft as a big-house racketeer--headline this prison movie that casts a reform-minded eye on the brutalizing effects of life in the slammer. "G" MEN (1935) Four years after starring in The Public Enemy, Cagney waged on-screen war against the nation's public enemies as a zealous FBI agent in a movie "fast, gutsy, as simplistic and powerful as a tabloid headline" (Time Out Film Guide).

I bought this specifically for White Heat, after seeing it on TCM. The digitally remastered quality just knocked me across the room and this DVD replicates same. Also, the movie G Men, which I had never seen before, was a treat and I was again floored by being able to see the threads on a guy's hat in one scene. The other films are good and worth watching, as well, but White Heat is among the best noirs I've ever seen and hard to compete with. Additionally, the special features on this disc offer hours of additional viewing and laughs. Great stuff and among the best DVD purchases I've ever made.

Got these for my dad and he loved the collection of movies that TCM put together. Picture quality was nice given the time when they were made HD was not around. My dad is a movie collector and this made the perfect gift. Run through the DVD's when you get it just to make sure they all work.

This DVD is a must for all those James Cagney fans. I don't know if he actually said "You dirty rat!" but in the film "White Heat" he actually delivered another classic line " Look Ma! I'm on top of the world!" James Cagney was a great actor who was able to play a wide variety of roles: gangsters, reporters, prison inmate, soldiers, FBI agent, the actor Lon Chaney, boxers, dancers, ranchers and even played Admiral Bull Halsey in the movie "The Gallant Hours." Not only did he play this great World Was II hero, but he actually had a striking resemblance to him! Clint Eastwood once said that when growing up, James Cagney was one of the actors and films that he enjoyed watching.

Turner Classic Movies - Greatest Gangster Films

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
A four movie, four-disk collection of gangster films staring the incomparable James Cagney. The disks are housed is a standard hard DVD case which slides into a cardboard sleeve. For the price - - a very nice package. I particularly like each movie on an individual disk with retro artwork on the disk too. Nice to loan and if one gets messed up you don't lose two or even all four films.

THE MOVIES:
City for Conquest - 1940
"G' Men - 1935
Each Dawn I Die - 1939
White Heat - 1949

EXTRAS:
Several short subjects pertaining to the 1930's or the films accompany each movie.

WHAT ABOUT THE MOVIES!
Fantastic - must sees! If you have never viewed these films before you are in for a real treat. Cagney is one of the movies true, original screen personas. I enjoyed all the films but "White Heat" is a personal and critical favorite. After seeing this film you'll know why the phrase: "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" is a so well know by film lovers.

I have no knowledge of the technology employed but these 70 plus year old black and white movies are a visual treat. Images are sharp and clear and the audio is noise free.

AMEN:
This is my 3rd Turner Classic Movies set and for the price and quality I have no problem recommending them.

Did you know that Michael J. Fox was set to play Cagney before he struck down with Parkinson's disease? (It was going to take a year or two to teach him that unique dancing.) Or that Cagney is one of Clint Eastwood's heros? Or that in each of the 3 movies he made with Humphrey Bogart--The Roaring Twenties, The Oklahoma Kid (his only western!) and Angels with Dirty Faces--Cagney guns down Bogart in the end? Or that for City for Conquest he jogged for hours each day in a rubber suit to shed 35 lbs? Or that the reason that he became an actor instead of a boxer--the only ticket to fame for many in his New York neighborhood--was because his mother dared to him to fight her and win...or give it up entirely...and he couldn't hit his mother. Or that his very first acting job was playing in a chorus, the guys all in drag?

When I was a kid I'd watch old movies with my dad. When I was 13, I wasn't paying that much attention till The Public Enemy. In the very last scene when he's propped up at the front door, with bloody bandages and a blanket tied around him, and when his brother opens the door and he wavers a bit and then falls flat on his face, dead...well...I asked breathlessly, "who is THAT??" I've been a diehard fan ever since.

This particular collection holds some of my favorites. It's funny how this great dancer has to play a guy with 2 left feet so Ann Sheridan can go off and live her dream dancing with that cad, Anthony Quinn, in one of his earliest roles in City for Conquest.

In G-Men, Warner Bros thought they could modify his gangster stereotype by making him join the FBI. He still had criminal connections.

Shows what real movie making was all about--the STORY! Shows what a real actor who could play any role looked like. "White Heat" alone is worth the package, but "City for Conquest" and "Each Dawn I Die" were surprisingly good and welcome treats.

The new generation hardly knows Gagney. In the recent Hollywood Reporter, they tell how TCM has changed and no longer just for oldies. Those Red Boxes and other sites have more movies and some are free. I would never watch a movie on a computer screen, even if they were free. But, I guess you can download them to a TV now too. Yes, these titles are mostly all good in quality. Block Buster went out of business due to the Red Boxes. The sites you can join watching 100s of movies, will replace the Red Boxes too. I built a library of DVDs.
